Batting: Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out of the tournament and in his absence, Bangladesh batting will rely mainly on Mushfiqur Rahim and Mohammad Mithun.to deliver the goods with the bat. While Ihsanullah Janat and his opening partner Mohammad Shahzad looked promising in their knocks of 45 and 34 respectively and the team will be hoping for another 50+ opening stand from them. Nazmul Hossain Shanto is likely to open with Liton Das, else Mohammad Mithun will be promoted.

While their most significant players still remain the spin wizard duo of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, other players like all-rounder Mohammad Nabi and Rahmat Shah are using the platform nicely to shine for their national team.

Bangladesh rested Mushfiqur Rahim and Mustafizur Rahman, meaning Mominul Haque played his first ODI since 2015 and Abu Hider made his debut.
